Washington DC - Bo Wo Wo Obama cocked his leg on the podium in joy when it was announced that he is to take this key role in negotiations with Taliban tribal leaders in the remote mountain province of Dogistahn.
"Too many people have been barking up the wrong tree," he growled, "The way to deal with these guys is to rub against their legs and wag your tail."
"They are not extremists, just ordinary good ole dog loving folks. Pat me on the back for stating it, but there is no point in chasing your tail around those mountains looking for mythical Bin Ladens, you have to take the problem in your teeth and give it a damn good shake."
"Yap, it might be rough, but one must go back to the roots to find the scent."
Bo Wo Wo, with special K9 forces in attendance, flies to Dogistahn tomorrow. He has been boning up on the historical background of the region since his arrival at the Dog House.
He is taking several cases of sticks, balls and frizbies with him as a gesture of good will. "If they throw me a curved one, I'll be ready."
